  • Cusine



1 lb. carrots, peeled and sliced in diagonal pieces. Organic whole carrots are best for this.

2 T olive oil

1/2 tsp. salt

fresh ground black pepper to taste

This makes enough for 5 batches of roasted veggies. Store leftover spice mix in a small glass jar.

2 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. ground coriander

1/2 tsp. chile powder, see notes

1/2 tsp. sweet paprika

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

pinch of ground cloves, optional


Peel carrots and cut into diagonal slices, cutting thicker parts of the carrot in half before you slice them diagonally so you have carrots that are about the same length and thickness. Mix  ground cumin, ground coriander, chile powder, sweet paprika, ground cinnamon, ground allspice, ground ginger, cayenne pepper, and cloves to make the spice mix. Start preheating the Air Fryer to 360F/185C if your Air Fryer needs to be preheated. Toss carrots with olive oil, salt, fresh-ground black pepper, and 1 tsp. of the spice mix. Spread carrots out in a single layer in the Air Fryer basket. Cook carrots 7-8 minutes; then remove basket and check them, flipping carrots over to the other side. Put the basket back into Air Fryer and cook carrots about 5-6 minutes more. Preheat oven to 475F/250C. Peel and cut carrots, make spice mix, and toss carrots with olive oil and spices as above. Cover shallow roasting pan with foil or spray with non-stick spray or olive oil. Arrange carrots in a single layer on pan. Roast 20-25 minutes, turning every 10 minutes, or until carrots are starting to brown and are slightly shriveled. Serve immediately.
